    Assuming everyone has swords, it is the man with a pen who can bring all those arms together as one force. Why do we hate mainstream media so much? Because what they write threatens to remove the sword from our hands. The power of inspirational...

    Well, I don't know about you Larry (you have been doing this a few more years than I have LOL!) but this mold that Al cut me is just about the nicest mold I have ever cast with. I'm taking a break right now from my second run, and it's absolutely...

    We aren't going to mayflower. Sgt.mike has a good range, we just have to reconcile a bunch of people who just want to have a decent time with a range that requires a certain level of structure. We'll get it lined out fellers. Just bear with us....

    Oh yeah. Darn. I was hoping to cheat and shoot these on Christmas holiday. Oh well, 2015 it is. OK, all kidding aside, I'm going to let these boolits season up for two weeks before I shoot them.

    You did exactly the right thing. I am a first responder at my workplace and I am trained in first aid and CPR but I have never had to use those skills (thank God. I broke two of their CPR dummies last time I was certified. They call me El Cruncho) ...

    I will Dick. But there is a process here that must be maintained. These boolits must now sit for 6 months to properly age harden before I can shoot them.

    I started with my basic 98.5Pb/1.5Sb alloy but I was unhappy with the fillout, so I added 6" of lead free solder (has a stiff of copper in it;)) This is how the boolits engrave the rifling (I made a gauge by cutting just the throat of the XCB...

    Well, there's no need to change everything. I was just giving my opinion and throwing it in the hat. I mean, is there a way we can just tell them that every swinger coming is going to be shooting 50BMG or less so that we can have freedom to loosen...

    Mike, I think what the fellers are saying is that we care about getting together, shaking hands and enjoying a little comradery. Perhaps some formal competitions might branch off if this meeting, but for the moment, I think all we are after is a...

    Rifle has to be in a caliber larger than .357 fellers. 7.62X39 doesn't cut it. They are trying to hammer people into a hole where only pistol cartridges exist. 30 carbine is out too. My first thought was the 30 Herrett (I have the dies and...

    I am trying to come up with some prizes. There may be lead, a mold, reloading equipment, or possibly even a firearm. No promises though. We are still in the planning stage.

    I used to shoot dry paper patches in my 358 Malcolm wildcat and my 358 Winchester. This was before the borescope became part of my collection of tools, so I really can't speak too intelligently about that, but what I did notice was that my Green...

    Do you feel that Forrest Carter accurately depicted him in the sequel Josey Wales book? Speaking of Forrest Carter (Asa Earl Carter) you should look up that piece of work. What a colossal douche bag! I loved reading The education of Little Tree...

    Two reasons: 1. weight. If your arms can survive a 1 hour casting session with a brass 6 bore, you are a tougher man than me. (dang, can't type! My left arm got a cramp just thinking about it!) 2. warpage. One of the Achilles heels of brass. The...

    Not that I know of. I tried to give you all of them (except LBT who deserves honorable mention, although I have no personal experience with them) If I missed any I figured the fellers would hammer a peg in the hole. Like I said, my personal...
